Women Empowerment

Women Empowerment

The Original Swim Parka is our flagship product that is manufactured locally utilizing quality imported fabric. Swim Parka currently outsources the manufacturing to a handpicked team of previously disadvantaged woman. In this way Swim Parka lives our commitment to Corporate Social Investment and alignment to the 2015 UN Sustainable Development Goals #5 (Achieve Gender Equality and empower women and girls) and #8 (Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all)  in job creation, social upliftment and the empowerment of women in South Africa.

As we scale up our capacity and manufacturing capability it is the intention of Swim Parka to formalize our continued commitment to the social upliftment and empowerment of women by creating a separate manufacturing company, Swim Parka Manufacturing, that will be majority owned by previously disadvantaged women.
